the waitin(-nom of tlie hotel thi
morning I mot a leading planter Irom
tho famous Sweetwater Valley who
became at once a lad man from Bitter
creek when the names of Bate and
Bob Tavlor were mentioned. "15oh
best yarn," he said, "is the one about
the hollow log. I heard that when I
was a boy, and lean toll it better than
he can. And it w asn't a hollow Ion
either; it was a hollow rail. They
threw out a sort of so to Bob, you
know, thinking that in that way they
would ftet him oil the Uulieriwtorial
tmek, but it worked tho other way.
Bob thought if lie t rtuld et no nint h
he could fret more. But an a mntter of
fact, Bob is keeping very quiet. He
knows, or ought to know, that Kast
Tcniicfweu won't 1 solid for him.
Pibrell is one of these quiet, easy
jfoing old fellows, but he will trot
there all the same. If Boh w ill lot up
on his darned anecdotes Dibrell can
wipe him up on the htiiuip with all
the ease in I ho w orld. I exect you
fellows in U'est Tennessee will try to
play the devil as usual. Nobody looks
for anything elae. The fact is w e are
afraid to sny which of the two we
want most for fear you will
get up, just for pure cussedness,
and give us an East Tennessee
man, but the one we don't want.
And nearly all the rows in the State
Bpring out of Shelby. I never sw
such a mule-headed sot of men. They
must rule or ruin. Maybe if they had
it all their own way they would
straighten up and do aouicthing
brilliant, but I don't know."
The gentleman from Bitter creek
then gave Middle Tonnes a mild dose
and wound up by saying that there
was only one tiling on which the three
erand divisions of the State were
united ft belief in the statesman,
Howell K. Jackson.
Anil, while I think of it, the name
of Mai. MeWhirter is lieinii mentioned
a good deal in connection with the

Middle Tennessee has lieen spoken of,
but savs he will not allow his name to

IMbrell so oftvn, 1 might as well tell
all I can learn alsmt his career,
as it is more than probable lie
will be hoard of a groat ileal between
this and next November. Ho was
born in White county in 1N22, was
raised on a farm and is still engaged in
that pursuit. Before his seventeenth
vear tie was elected clerk of the State
Bank, which position he held for six
veurs, when he resigned and began
arming, stock rawing and mer
chandising. For twelve years he was
County Clerk of White county. In
18411 he was elected to the legislature
without opposition. When -the war
broke out he volunteered in the Twenty-fifth
Tennessee Infantry ami was
promoted to the rank of lieuU'tiaut
colonel in August of the same year,
In the reorganization he was defeat
ed for lieutenant-colonel, and, going
home, raised the Eighth Tennessee
Cavalry inside of the enemy's line
and was assigned to Gen. Forrest's
brigade, commanding the brigade after
the death of Col. Stams, receiving
his commission as brigadier general in
March, 1H04. lie was detailed and
ordered to report to Jell'erson lavis
and escorted him and his Cabinet
from t rreensboro, N. C, to Washing
ton, Ga. In May he was paroled and
marched his command home, found
his farm destiluted and his family des
titute, and put. his hand to the plow.
In l)ecemlier,lrl(U, he was elected to the
convention which framed our present
constitution, receiving the nomination
at a mass convention without solicita
tion on his part. He continued to
farm and raise stock until ho was elect
ed to the Forty-fourth Congress, lie
was re-nominated by acclamation to
the Forty-fifth and Fort v-se vent h Con
gresses, and was re-elected to the
Forty-eighth, voluntarily declining
election to the Forty-ninth. While in
Congress, Gen. Dibbrell served eight
years on the Committee on Agricul
ture, six years on the Military Com
mittee, two years on Public Expendi
tures antl Manufactures and Pensions.
The last bill of a public nature he got
through was one making all public
roads post roads, so that mail might
le carried on them without a special
act of Congress. He introduced a bill
in the Forty-fourth Congress provid
ing that any employe of tiie govern
ment who should dcuiandj receive or
contribute money for election or cam
paign purposes should be guilty of a
misdemeanor, punishable by fine and
imprisonment. It was passed by the
House and went to the Senate, where
Blaine and others fought it bitterly,
and the present law was passed. In
the Forty-fifth a bill, under a suspen
sion of the rules, to assess incomes
was introduced by himtnd pass,e4 trie
Houseby a. majritJT6f 17, out failed
for want of a two-thirds vote. In tho
Forty-sixth he introduced a bill to
suspent) the internal revenue tax
on all articles subject to it in
the hands of producers, which failed
for want of a two-thirds majority, but
by his efforts a bill was passed allow
ing producers to sell f 100 worth at the
place where produced. He was on
the Burnside committee to reorganize
the United States army, in the Eorty

Corrigan will come aith the

St Louis Republican has the lollowing
ti say about their condition: When
the Corrigan stable cams into winter
quarters it showed signs of very se
vere campaigning, in fact looked
si if it was jn a despeiats stats tor this
year aa far as tha older bases were
concerned, but the chant tha1, hai
been effected by a winter's care is a
little less than marvelous. There is
no need to waste time in prtfaea as it
is better to go straight to analysis of
the stats of each horse, and as candid
confession is good for the scul It may
be aa well to say jutt heref that the
cripples of the stable have, m a whole,
come far better through tie winter
than wis anticipated by the, writer, in
pi int. last fall. I
F reeland The crack is deserving of
a separata paragraph on the strength
of his past performances, but were
such not the case he would be so on
1 his present appearance. Freeland
never started out for a season's train
ing looking within fourteen pounds of
his present form. He has always
been a great horse, but he has never
looked ai good as he does to-dty. He
is now one of the grandest thorough'
breds that can be imagined, and hae
th'ckened in a style more usual tj a
three-year old than to a campaigner.
He is now a deep mahogany bay in
place of his pale-ale stripe of the past,
and carries more meat than be ever
carried before. He, in the past,
has always commenced a season
lather aa one of ' Pharaoh's
lean kine than on the stalled ox
pait arn, but he ia now really as big as
a bull, while his flesh is hard and firm
withal. His coat wears the bloom cf
bealtb, and the old fellow is fall of
life and spirits. A nip at a coat but
ton or a knuckle of the buck of the
band puts him on terms at once with
an interviewer, and this plan succeed
ing shows thft he ia la rare kcoiI jettle
all over. When he tttrte out from
his stall he ia a bit careful about his
manner of going, and minces along for
the firtt few minutea in the way that
a gouty old New Yorker travels down
the et spa of bis club.but be toon warms
up and walks away in quite ajauniv
style. The heat has left his fetlocks at
the sessamolds, though its recurrence
is a ceittinty when he commences
wo-k. He stands over a bit more.
perhaps, than he did last season, and
hiB forelegs are not altogether free
from that tremulous motion which al
ways ia to be seen in a bowed old
horse. All of the Belle Knights are.
however, declared to stand over com
paratively early in their racing life,
and yet to s'aod up as long ss the
rest of them ; and it may be hoped
that this peculiarity will extend to
Freeland. To sum up hie condition at
the starts of '80, he is in bettar itt'.le
to begin on than he ever was before,
but he baa worse legs on which to
carrv more horse than tbey ever car
ried before. His training is a sort of
Marguerite question be stands up

lieves that the latter sentence will be
the troth before the end of tha Chi
caso meetina.
Modesty is a female Lizarus. She
was terribly under the weather when
she came here last fall, bat the is now
big and lusty and in splendid health.
Her winter coat bears a polish worthy
of la's spring and If tbs thickening
over her thorax has dona her wind no
harm she should quite act np to tb
beet of her lait year's performances.

Kbw YoWi, February 25. Tbe busi
ness meeting of tbe stockholders of
tbe American Opera Company was
held kt tho National Conservatory of
Music, No. 128 East Seventeenth
street, this evening. Great onthusl
asminthe purpoae to give opera in
English, and by native artists, chsr
acterized the meeting. While abund
ant indications were afforded tbat the
new enterprise is alrealy an assured
financial success. Beports were pre
sented showing that responsible par
ties in tbe leading cities of the
country have aeked for contracts
for opera at fixed dates, extending
for a year from the end of this season.
Tbe details of closing contracts,
forming definite plans for the next
two years and the election cf perma
nent officers were referred to a special
committee to report at an adjourned
An address explaining the history
and purposes of the organir.ition, pre
pared by Mrs. Jetnnelts M. Thurber,
was read and placed upon the minutes.
The address is as follows:
Laihim and Gbntlkmbm Oar pros
pectus states that, while recognizing
all we owe to European artists, the
time had coraf for America to free
herself from absolute dependence
upon foreign talent ; that a national
conservatory snd national opera re
trained in abeyance to the gTeatloss
ol the entire community, that, while
nvnrv uettv State in Europe was in
nrmaao alt fY r.f those advantages, our
rrt had vet to make the

consequence of our seeming apathy
and indifference, the mott musically

mencements of a career otherwise de
nied them. This was a paicf al ad
mission, but aa true ai painful. Will
we make the first steps? Uiitjry
demonstrates that if a people are to
be impressed with the value of any
thing tbey must see, not aa a theory,
but in practice. Hence the sim
ultaneous origin cf tho national
conservatory aad American opera.
The opera ia but the preservation
in part of what lie beyond ifelf, aod
in thia sense ia the outcome ti tbe
"school." The sympathy between the
two things, though they are entirely
distinct, is perfect, Tha scho3l is de
signed to offer to the beat voictsin
America the best training we can .ive
them, but such a school without an
outlet in which the beet pupils thit it
trains may at the termination ot their
studies commence with honor the
career for which they have been edu
cated, would be a thing unheard
ol in the history ot music.
The "American opeia" supplies Ihe
need thus indicaed, though its ad
vantage are by no means restrktsd to
this. It is, and must always remain
in tha power o tbe impresario, to
gather together all elements from
whatever quarter tbat may conduce
to tbe success of an enterprise. He
directs tbat be is In no way limited t
the resources famished by the school,
but he is bound to ignore no real tal
ent that it oilers, and to assign to the
possessors of such tbe roles at his dis
posal when not impeiatively claimed
by the superior ability of o hers.
Thanks to tbe genius and ability of
Theodora Thomas, to the energy ol
his able manager, Charles E. Locke,
and to the assistance of a few pubhc
spirited citizens, wboje g-neious gym
pathiee were supplement ad by finan
cial aid, there baa been gathered to
gether from all part of ihe Unit id
States within a single year tbe mate
rial for a giand opera company. This
more or less crude u aterlal has bean,
with Infinite skill, patience and judg
ment, so trained tiat the reeulie are
frankly balled by pess and people
with expns lions ot astonishment and
delight The mlse-en scene, costumes
and accessories are acknowledged ar
tletlc successes. They are of Ameri
can manufacture, from workshop! es
tablished for tbe express purpose,
which bave furnished employment to
hundreds. The orchestra is unrivaled,
the chorus exceptional, tbe ballet
ff-racetai. and finally the star system
has been discarded as opposed
to tha eduraMoral principles upon
which the enera is established.
The sclo artists are, il not of
transcendent, excellence, at b'ast
itssnrvine of everv encouragement lor
the talents exhibited and results
achieved. Enough haa already been
accomplished to demonstrate thst
many things which a year ago were
nnnaidared imnoesib'e were in reality
fnasible. and are to-day a fact It Is
evident that with moderate encour
sgement American opera will become
a permanently uueful and beneficial
Institution. This has induced some of
its most active supporters to advocate
Its Incorporation witn a capital
ot t25O.0OO. Tbe desirability of inter
eeting a large number of persons in
sn enterprise of this Datura, with Ha
bility limited to the amount of stuck
taken, would be evident in any cape,
but considering tbe spirit and purt ote
of the entire effort, suoh an incorpoia
tion assumes a character almost of
necessitv. It is. therefore, with
sense of deepest (atisfaction that
I am enabled to announce tbe
consent of Messrs. Tbomai and
Locke to a transfer of their
intxrtuit and services in the enterprise,
With this we have tbe gratification cf
knowing that more than halt ol tne
capital stock has been taken within
the last four weeks, and tbat the bal
ance will be placed as it may be re
quired. It ia gratifying sleoto rote
tbat financially, though this
has been an after consideration,
the venture has every project of
proving successful. Net withstanding
that the only open dates at the Acad
emy of Music were opera nights at tho
Metropolitan, and that German opera,
admirably rendered, drew, deservedly,
large eudienues, still the reception
that American opera baa met upon
It first appearance bun been even
more generous than anticipated. As
surances already received by Messrs.
Thomas snd Locke Indicate a yet
warmer reception throughout the
States. The scenery being used an l
in preparation is constructed with a
view to transportation. Tha pnblic
everywhere warmly favor the enter
prise, and an exceptionally liberal
support ie In many places al
ready assured. It only remains for
me now to eurnestly solicit your per
sonal interest aod hearty co-operation
in an e libit to establish permanently
and worthily tbe tao great works that
bsve been brought before you. Tbey
are undertaken in a spirit ss broad as
tbat of music itself, advocating no
special policy and slaves ol no special
school. We wish, like tbesa United
Slates, to extend a band of welcome
to all. We aim at producing the
beet works of the best composers of
svery land. We sre convinced tbit by
so doing we shall assist more effi
ciently than by any other method
the evolution of what talent and mu
sical genius may exist among the 60,
000,000 of our people. . America hold!
to-day ber fitting position in ths d
mains of science and letters. We be
lievt oho only need inch help
sa we are now indicating
to do i herself equal honor in
tba domain of music. Pursuing this
broad policy, wo appeal aa strongly to
tha natrintim of onr adopted fallow
citizens aa to that of those born upon
American tod ; indeed, tbe passing c i
a single generation makes Americans
of ns sll. It is for our children and
our children children tbat wa are
now combining to make sucb provis
ion ai sbnll be worthy of them and
worthy of ourse'ves snd worthy of
our common country.
